To Wem­b­ley

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

As­sis­tant man­ager Wat­son said: “At 1-0 it’s al­ways tense even though we were quite com­fort­able.

“Every­one played their part. It was a real team ef­fort.

“They were war­riors at the end of the day and gave us ev­ery­thing they’ve got.”

And when the ref­eree blew his whis­tle on 90 min­utes Wat­son ex­plained what the vic­tory meant for the club: “It’s huge for Mac­cles­field Town. It’s a club that’s had alot of knock­backs.

“Fi­nan­cially we shouldn’t be able to com­pete with Tran­mere Rovers but we find a way to do it.”

The for­mer New­cas­tle, Ever­ton and Villa man was quick to thank the loyal sup­port shown by the Moss Rose faith­ful: “They were the 12th man on Satur­day. They were fan­tas­tic,” and he urged them to get be­hind the team in the same way for the re­main­ing league fix­tures.

Mac­cles­field Town will now come face to face with York City on May 21 in a fi­nal that will un­doubt­edly cre­ate a buzz for the whole town.
